Impressions of St. Servatius

Two days ago, I visited the Basilica of St. Servatius in Maastricht, Diocese of Roermond. The current basilica minor, which houses the remains of the first bishop of the Netherlands (and also the one from whom it takes its name), dates from 1000. Here, “just for nice” are some photos.

Not in St Servatius, but the nearby Basilica of Our Lady Star of the Sea
